182: What to Post on Social Media with Italina Kirknis and Miriam Schulman

with host artist Miriam Schulman

When you’re focused on creating and selling art, understanding how to optimize your social media channels can become a major roadblock. Social media can be super effective in helping you increase your online sales, but you have to know there is more to it than just posting images of your amazing art.

I’ve brought in the Online Presence Expert, Italina Kirknis. She is sharing ways for you to create more engagement and connection that will help you increase your art sales considerably.

“Share more than your art, so people will buy your art.” 

-Italina Kirknis

In this podcast, you will discover…

3 Game-Changing Ideas to Get You Results: 

  • What you can share other than your art
  • How to set boundaries with your personal life
  • Ways to use free social media platforms to grow your business and your network

Italina’s Tip for Finding Easy Content to Post:

Check your calendar the night before and see what activities you can take a photo of or make into a quick story. People relate to the things they do too. 

Driving your engagement up, connecting with people, and sharing a glimpse into your life helps your personal brand. It builds rapport and makes you more relatable, which makes people more likely to interact with you and ultimately more likely to purchase.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.
